 Title:  Welton Becket architectural drawings and photographs  
 Dates:  1913-2009, bulk 1930-1969 
 Abstract:  The Welton Becket architectural drawings and photographs document the career of this architect whose iconic designs defined the built environment of Los Angeles in the mid-twentieth century. Comprised of over 10,000 drawings and over 1500 photographs, the collection includes a selection of projects from Becket's earliest independent work in 1930, through his involvement in the firms of Plummer, Wurdeman and Becket; Wurdeman and Becket; and Welton Becket and Associates, until his death in 1969. The archive also contributes to the discussion of structural and theoretical changes in architectural practice in the mid-twentieth century.
